Question: Working on my mom's dell computer. It is 4 years old. Recently it has had some problems turning on the computer. Sometimes it will not come on and sometimes it will. I think that problem is fixed, but now it will come on, go to the black screen of windows, and then a complete blank screen with the mouse pointer in hour glass shape and it stays that way. Couple of times i will get to the blue windows screen and it will say "windows is starting" and that is it. Like it locks up. What could be the problem? If i do not find an answer i will take it to a computer shop monday.

Your best bet would be to do a clean install if you have the cd that is Windows XP Clean Installation - Partitioning and Formatting using Windows XP CD http://windowsxp.mvps.org/XPClean.htm http://www.theeldergeek.com/xp_home_inst... http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/cleanx...

Will you toggle between the mother's point of view and the daughters? Example -if the first chapter is from the mother's point of view and she is in hospital having baby. The first sentence/paragraph describes the labor pains like it is "hell" for her. During the contractions she has thoughts of the father of the child pretending to love her to have sex with her, humiliating her when he belittles her in front of their friends, how he turned their friends against her after he had sex with her by treating her like a whore. Does the mother come from a strict religious family that also turned against her after she had sex? The next chapter would be from the daughters point of view- example - the daughter is eight, at school, quoting something horrible/insane that her mother is brainwashing her with. You need to plan the point of view you will be using. For example- Instead of from the mother or daughter it might be from one of their intended victims who is barely alive when they relate the story to a detective. They might have been a neighbor who grew up with the mother and knew the father of the child too- who was in school and church with the mother. Good luck- sounds like a fun story to write.

I guess you're going for like a thriller/scary kind of deal.... I would start it when the daughter is like three years old, and the mother and the daughter are in the park. The mother sees a bird and excitedly says like "Look (daughter's name)! Look at the little pretty bird!" Then daughter could kill the bird with a stone. The chapter could close with the mother just smiling at the daughter. Or you could segue into a thought process where she thinks about how she got pregnant, her family issues, and what she plans to do with her daughter. Or the next chapter could bounce back in her life to the point where she finds out she's pregnant or something. I don't know... I've never really written anything like that, but I can imagine it as a movie, and that's how it came up in my mind. Mine? http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?...

There are many ways you could start this: Bear in mind these named are made up lol ‘I didn’t want to,’ Alice said with sudden anxiety. ‘Alice you have killed a person. You stole one soul, how could you not mean to murder him?’ The man sat down, leaning back on his chair, his inquiring mug deepening as a heavy silence fell upon the dim lit room. Alice’s flat brown eyes gazing into his unblinkingly. ‘He’s not the first...’ She swallowed hard. ‘He isn’t the first that she made me kill.’ ‘Who made you kill people?’ The silence returned. ‘My mum.’ You could begin like that and then go backwards and explain what happened from the beginning. And you could even leave the mum bit out, and then people can find that out for themselves.

I use AVG free anti virus. Also, on at least my pc I hit run and type chkdsk not what someone above my answer suggested. the mentioned anti-virus allways finds, heal, and removed any virus I might've gotten. Not all spyware is bad either, nor are all cookies bad. I suggest you and other answerers or question askers try out the "pc Magazine" web site. These guys play around with trying to put spyware or viruses on to test computers, then figure out the best, most practical ways or software to prevent such stuff. I learned that a lot of answers on here are not worth listening to. You need to be careful what link you click, or software that is supposed to remove spyware or viruses. I've totally erased my 2006 Gateway now about 13 times. All because I tried some really stupid methods of remving what you said.
